Re: Wifi networks

My preference is a single SSID for everything. Our house has a lot of
concrete, and over the years I've experimented with different routers,
extenders etc. and finally settled on BT Whole Home stuff, with 4 disks,
and it works brilliantly. I've switched my router wifi off and solely rely
on the BT stuff for all my wifi devices now.

I still use the router as a DHCP server, and I allocate addresses to all my
unusual devices, so Raspberry Pis and Wemos D1's are all in the same range

Regards

Simon
